First, my hips were out alignment. With work in the gardens, golfing, work-outs, etc. as I aged, my sciatic nerve became inflamed with a couple of disc issues. My hammies and calves would get wound tight and finish me off. The last time it happened to me, I literally did the 90 year old grandpa walk from the car to the couch. Did some web searches and saw this method and its success stories from patients. Found a reputable Chiro that did it, made the call and was in for my first treatment the next day. Five treatments/two weeks later I was back to doing 10,000+ steps per day. Cut me loose to golf again after 60 days.
The Chiro started with the activator on the spine and hips, then the legs, then deep massaged the hammy and calf muscles. Got everything back into alignment and took the pressure off the nerves and discs. Had me do exercises and use techniques while in the treatment chair and on a floor mat. Still do several, especially the tail against the baseboard and legs up the wall technique. I added some stuff while down there; like head/neck turns/lifts, crunches, deep breathing techniques, etc. Two birds with one stone stuff.
